It's got less to do with the bike and more to do with your head.

My first bike was a 749.
That's no 1199 to be sure, but it's not a 250 either.
I learnt to ride on it under the supervision of some good mates and talented riders, and didn't kill myself.

Be sensible (riding the bike), and careful (manoeuvring the bike, ie in a garage) and you will be fine.

As long as you're aware of what can go wrong (and you're not kidding yourself)... the only bad decision is not making one!

Have you seen how the people drive in Russia? Furthest thing from sensible. Take that driving mentality then add the most powerful production motorcycle on the market = retardation.

You could always buy this, as i am sure it will teach you how to slide the Panigale.

+1 for Wet Mode if you have to buy the 1199

No one can tell you what is your best choice, although we can help with the pros and cons. If you're responsible and willing to be patient, you can start with an 1199 and be successful. It will take years of practice though and I couldn't conceive running the bike in full power mode initially.

If you have no experience on bikes, you can't possible conceive how powerful an 1199 is in full-power mode (Sport or Race). Even in Wet Mode it is staggering compared to a car, etc.
Thanks from arihant

It's not even how mad people drive in Russia but also the road hazards of the roads themselves, I've seen missing manhole covers huge pieces of missing asphalt to name but a few.
At least start with a 600 or something first before stepping up to the latest SuperBikes

thanks, understand however will riding HD 889 will not be enough to jump 1299 at 120 low?

My friend has a Ducati 999 and I can imagine what kind of beast this bike, though inferior to the characteristics of the 999 1199.

What will advise:
Take 1199 and the first year of driving very carefully
Perfected in the second year.

Or take something simpler, like evolution, 848. (Or is it a hard for beginner, too)

Give expert advice for the beginner in motorsport, please.


Thanks in advance for your opinion
This will be your friends inevitable destiny if he buys a super bike as a first bike...
